What is CHSP?
Commonwealth Home Support Program is a government funded program that supports older people who are still managing well at home, but would like some extra assistance. Many people use CHSP when they need low-level support. Services are prescribed by a Regional Assessment Service (RAS).
Visit the Department of Health website for more information.
